Does anyone know where I can get chestnut flour in NYC?
I saw it at Buon Italia on Friday. I've also seen it sold in bulk at International Grocery (9th Ave & 40th St), but I don't know how fast it turns over.

I've heard that it goes off fairly quickly but on the other hand, I was surprised to see a "use by" date well in the future on the packaged flour at Buon Italia. (I forget how far exactly but I'm pretty sure it was into 2011.) I guess I might be more wary of bulk or undated flour, but to me it suggested it's not quite as fragile as some make it out to be.
Fwiw, it was about $7/lb at Buon Italia; I've never looked for it at Kalustyan's but I suspect it's more expensive there. It's been a long time since I bought it at International Grocery, but it was pretty cheap, at least at the time.
